deals with the world away from the u.s. military and toward u.s. diplomacy. to upscale our soft power capacity as a country so we have more options beyond just the option of force. this president did a lot to advance that idea simply by putting somebody as high profile as hillary clinton in the job of america's head diplomat. but the overall goal of upscaling state, upscaling diplomacy and development so they are right up there with defense, like she said today, that is widely regarded as a goal that is not yet realized. secretary clinton alluded to that fact today when she said she now plans to become an advocate for that cause from the outside. it is, frankly, easy to imagine that as the core for her return to public life and politics for hillary clinton at some point, but we shall see. the secretary also reflected today on how she is really leaving public life for the first time in a very long time. and she suggested that that might make her a little lonely. >> i am very proud to have been secretary of state. i will miss you. i will probably be dialing ops just to talk. >> dialing

so much higher? yes it's a refinery issue, yes it's a switch to summer blends, but also the u.s. government is weighing in on this. the energy information administration which is part of the department of energy put out this note. of it said essentially watch this tax move on the part of oil companies. in the month of december oil inc inch ten inventory convenient torreys dropped in the gulf coast region a tremendous amount, and why? look at this statement from the eia? they've said u.s. oils inventories typically decline in the month of december as oil companies try to cut their state and local tax bills. the more inventory you have the higher your tax bill. an interesting disclosure from the energy tporp administration. what we are seeing in california, more than a dozen cities are breaking the $4 mark on gasoline. why? because california has some of the highest state taxes in the country. also, hawaii, alaska, new york, the motorists there are going to have a hard time at the pump when they realize that their state taxes are pretty high versus the national average. the nation

the last year to really broaden the u.s. knowledge of what's going on in syria, who the key players are. and i think if you end up, if you're getting close to a circumstance where there might be either rationalized or let's call it a highly decentralized result to the conflict, then you really want to know 100 people. you don't want to be dependent on just walking a white horse down main street at damascus and hoping that some leader jumps on and we go. so this is the kind of sort of ground, foundation building that you have to undertake and that we've done. >> could you tell us something a little more specific about how you're actually doing that? do you know 100 people in aleppo? you've got a team of 200. are you able to get people on the ground, work with others? >> sirree is a really good challenge, because you have to work out of a third country, which has its own for distinct feelings about what's going on inside of syria and what it might mean to them. so we're working -- up until the last two weeks, we have worked exclusively in turkey. and then we, now we started to work in jor

say they do not have the capability to make a bomb. >> well, zoraida, it will be days before the u.s. has a very good handle on the size of the explosion, the size of the payload, but at first glance what u.s. officials are very concerned about are north korea's claims that it testified a miniaturized nuclear weapon. why is that so concerning? that means they're closer to making a missile that they could launch toward the united states. these types of dplier tesnuclea moves them closer to mastering the idea. it was expected, officials tell me, that north korea warned the u.s. and china yesterday that a test was eminent. after the test president obama issued a statement. what he said was north korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs constitute a threat to u.s. national security and to international peace and security. we will strengthen close coordination with allies and partners and work with our six-party partners,united nations security council and other u.n. member states to pursue this. they will be meeting this morning in an emergency session. my source is telling
